Wow, Nice photo from the location of my ancestors.
Peter, Abigail Jackson is a family name as well as Long Point and 'Troyer' Flats. Dr. Troyer was a ?grandfather.

The photo is great but I feel a little bit more contrast is needed but not enough to dim the fog...

Peter,

I rather like the misty look.. even if it seems a bit under contrasted.
Aloha

Wonderful photograph Peter, reminds me of something that Frank Meadow Sutcliffe might have done. If you have never heard of him he was a pioneer in photography born in Whitby in 1853, Kodak used to get him to test out their cameras.

His images are usually portraits, but occasionally you see ones of water & trees, much like your photograph here. (Whitby is also famous for having a hotel that overlooks a very eerie abbey. Bram Stoker stayed at the hotel when he wrote Dracula)

Thanks for all the comments

I had heard of Frank Meadow Sutcliffe, but had never seen any of his work, thanks!

I have tried to increase contrast but I keep messing up the picture when I try. Not sure it is because I am trying to boost something that is not there or I just haven't figured out how to do it right.

Maybe cut the dock out into a adjustment layer and only change its contrast? (I'm terrible at selecting/cutting out only parts of images)

Don't mess with it, Peter. It's perfect as is. However, if you feel like playing, create a duplicate layer, set it to "multiply" mode, then reduce the opacity until you like (or don't like) what you see.

I like the picture as it is but I couldn't resist - I increased the contrast with a simple levels adjustment. I brought the white point down to the top of the hump on the histogram and brought the black point up, but not too much or it would lose the mist. I also noticed your file is still in Adobe RGB - that might be playing games with some monitors - sRGB is best for posting.
